HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nothing hits the spot on a hot summer day like diving into your refreshing pool. When you have the pleasure of having a swimming pool right in your backyard, you want to make sure you take care of every piece so you can enjoy it for years to come. Manufacturer of inground pool liners, LOOP-LOC, shares 4 tips to keep your pool liner in top condition.
- Keep your chemicals in check.Making sure your pool chemicals are properly balanced will create an ideal environment for your liner. If a chemical is too low, it provides a breeding ground for algae and bacteria that can stain your liner. If the chemicals swing the other way and become too high, your pool liner may wrinkle. Consistent testing and balancing is the key to sustaining a beautiful liner.
- Don't drain your pool in the offseason.It's recommended to drain your pool below skimmer level; never drain it entirely! A drained pool can lead to a dried-out liner that leads to cracking and imperfections that water will be able to seep through.
- Take care of rips and tears immediately.As mentioned previously, any type of imperfection found in your pool liner is a spot for water to seep through and damage your pool. If you notice a rip or tear, head to your local pool store and pick up patching glue. If taken care of promptly, sometimes draining the pool for a full repair can be avoided.
- A clean pool is a happy pool.Vacuuming your pool daily and keeping up on liner cleaning will keep your pool in great condition. Avoid using any abrasive cleaning materials, such as steel wool or rough pads, to clean the liner as that can be damaging and cause rips. Use alkaline-based cleaning products to avoid your liner drying out from harsh chemicals.
A beautiful pool liner is a perfect finish for your pool. Taking proper care of your liner will be vital to keep it around for future enjoyment and not have to go through the hassle of draining your pool to replace it. The tips above will help keep your liner in great condition until you're ready for an upgrade or change.
